This semester, Leaver House Leaders were given the challenge to look beyond themselves and think of how the House could make a positive difference in the community by contributing to a charity.
The charity chosen was The Lost Dogs Home Cranbourne and during Term 3, each Leaver Wellbeing Group had the challenge to collect donations and raise awareness about this charity. The House Leaders also organised activities with an animal theme, including a colouring competition, trivia, 4-square competition and a Frisbee challenge.
By the end of this term, Leaver House had seven huge tubs of goods to donate. On Friday 8 September, House Captain, Holly L, accompanied some students from the winning wellbeing group to hand over the donations. Mr Steve Kearney, Emerson R, Naaz C and Finley H accompanied Madame Morgan to the shelter and despite the arctic weather, it was a wonderful afternoon and they even got to meet some of the animals.
It is reassuring to know that these donations will help animals as they wait for their forever homes.
